Just copy whatever was in ARMs for last year into excel and send it back to your manager. Maybe adjust names if anyone left the firm etc. Say you did a high level one based on PY and unfortunately was too ride up to do anything more detailed. Done in 30 min.

Talk to your manager and explain your current load. He/she can talk to the manager for other engagement and they can decide what you need to prioritize.

This sounds like my Director.. I am pretty proactive and personally plan to work at night to manage my workload but she takes advantage of me and my schedule. Idk what to do. She's been treating me better compared to 3 years ago and I think it's because she realize how many staff/seniors left because of her and I'm still here...
